With October being the official month for Fashion Week San Diego and all things fashion in and round southern California, I find myself shopping more to find the perfect outfit for the occasion. Endless hours in fitting rooms and analyzing the racks for an awesome outfit has opened my eyes to a couple of signs. Signs that prove I probably shouldn’t buy that pair of pants, skirt or top because of…
10 Signs You Shouldn’t Buy it
- You find yourself saying “Well, it is half off the original price.”
- It is buy one get one half off, aka BOGO.
- You tell yourself “I can sew this here, and let it out there, and shorten here…”
- You establish you can either go without wearing a bra or underwear if you are going to wear it..
- You can’t raise your arms above your head without hearing something tear or exposing any private areas.
- You tell yourself “Once I lose the last 10 lbs it will zip/button.”
- You can only think of 1 or 2 outfits that could possibly work with it out of your whole wardrobe.
- You can get a damage discount because It has a hole or a makeup stain on it
- It requires a lot of fussing and adjusting in order to get it to look right
- It is made of itchy fabric
The chances of you actually wanting the item is heavily influenced by the price or the pressure of feeling obligated to buy a second one because it is half off, even when you don’t like it. I can’t tell you the number of times I have bought something because it was on super sale even when it was still relatively expensive. Also, I am guilty of numbers 5,6,8 and 9 as I can’t help but have wishful thinking. After experiencing all of these myself, I have concluded that it probably isn’t meant to be bought if I am only buying it because it is on sale, I have to change myself to wear it or if it requires extra work on my end for it to be wearable.
